Welcome

I am Rod Wynne-Powell, and this is my way to pass on snippets either of a technical nature, or related to what I am currently doing or hope to be doing in the near future.

A third-person description follows:

Professional photographer, Lightroom and Photoshop Workflow trainer, Consultant, digital image retoucher, author, and tech-editor for Martin Evening's many 'Photoshop for Photographers' books.

For over twenty years, Rod has had a client list of large and small companies, which reads like the ‘who’s who’ of the imaging, advertising and software industries. He has a background in Commercial/Industrial Photography, was Sales Manager for a leading London-based colour laboratory and has trained many digital photographers on a one-to-one basis, in the UK and Europe.

Still a pre-release tester for Adobe in the US, for Photoshop, he is also very much involved in the taking of a wide range of photographs, as can be seen in the galleries.

Warm Wednesday at Stockwood Discovery Centre




I had not visited the Gardens at Stockwood for some while, and I knew that it would be a mass of late Spring colour, and judging by my own garden, the bees would be hard at work pollinating.

I was not disappointed. There was such a variety that I was there far longer than intended, I was spoiled for choice. I had travelled light; with just the Tamron 90mm Macro lens on the Canon EOS 7D with ringflash attached. I specifically wanted to limit myself to just this lens as it would allow me to concentrate on detail. The reason for using the ringflash was to grasp the opportunity to freeze any bees if they came into frame, even if in flight, and I did succeed on a few occasions. The beauty of the Tamron as opposed to the 100mm Canon macro is I am able to move in closer, and it is nevertheless a very crisp lens.
